330ml bottle, 2018 label, 06.10.2020 dated (+5 years), poured into a stemless wine glass.

The beer pours a deep burgundy color, cola hues with a thin finger of khaki head, loose bubbles that offer no retention nor lacing. The aroma is nice, deep rich stone fruits, hearty grain, brown bread, clove, fruity yeast, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, oak, raisin, and licorice. The flavors are good, lots of stone fruits, raisin, licorice, strong Belgian yeast, brown sugar, caramel, lots of brown bread, soft oak, anise, and a bit of spice. The mouthfeel is okay, coating, a bit thin, a little more on the flat side than expected but with a hearty finish.

Verdict: A nice Quad from De Struise. The beer could use a bit of life in the body, but flavor wise, it's all there. Delivering the type of complexity and depth that makes the Quad such a captivating style.

One of the best beers I ever had. Unfortunately there was just one good for consumption, the two other bottles in the shop were badly bottled and tasted weird after being bottled in 2018.

2012 vintage

Because of the very low cask-strength carbonation, neither the appearance nor mouthfeel sit with me well. I have the same complaint about the mouthfeel of nitro stouts that I think suffer because of the lack of carbonation, which is critical to what makes beer good imo. Aromas and flavors are great, though. Tastes like a fine port or other semi-sweet red wine, with nice complex bourbon overtones. Four years in the barrel does wonders to any beer

Urbain excels at creative craft brewing within each style of beer he has produced.
The deep brown pour with a garnet hue and produces a rich sandstone head with no prolonged lacing
The smell is full of deep malt, raisin and brown sugar.
Flavor is exceptional with a complex balance fruits, malts and yeast.
Overall the beer is a very well balanced Quad with wonderful / full big mouthfeel but not filling. This is a big beer Beer with a balanced footprint. I have aged these beers for 4 year verticals and they pair well many raw milk Goudas, Alp Cheese, and Vacherin...

The beer pours a dark brown with a thin layer of tan head that dissipates immediately. It has low carbonation. The beer smells of raisins, grapes, licorice, and cherries. The beer tastes of raisins, grapes, licorice, and cherries. The feel is full, complex and smooth. A really nice Quad.

One of the best gets better. Bottle shared by Rich from 2008 series. This one aged very well, still as smooth and slick as butter. Dark dried fruits, yeast, typical Belgian ale but oh so tasty.

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with light tan head. Aroma of molasses, caramel, brown sugar. Moderately sweet and sticky mouthfeel. Flavors of caramel, toffee, molasses, brown sugar. Very nice Belgian beer that hides ABV very well.

2012 vintage. Pours burnt umber with a medium head that surprisingly didn't leave lace. Nose is quite woody with a hint of burnt caramel and sour cherry. Taste is vinous as expected from the nose. On the dry side for a big quad, although much of that may be perceived due to some tannins amplifying the bitterness. A touch of dates remain, but also red wine. Some light vinegar characteristics of an oud bruin as well. Interesting and complex, but the way it comes together actually detracts from the overall enjoyment of the beer.

2008 Vintage

Look: Opaque cola brown with a thin eggshell colored head. No activity visible. It’s a bit muddy looking.

Smell: Rich and sticky. Toffee, dates, figs, caramelized sugar, poached plums, oak, and port wine. Very vinous.

Taste: The attack is all dried dates covered in honey. This drys up quickly to a quenching body of leather, tobacco, vanilla, burnt sugars, cinnamon, oak, red wine poached plums, slight alcohol, figs, and mores dates. The fruity notes continue on the finish with rich drying oak notes.

Feel: Surprisingly smooth. Quenching body with a dry finish. Mild carbonation. Aqueous. Alcohol is present but it is smooth as it warms the chest and not at all abrasive.

Overall: Pretty incredible stuff. It reminds me a lot of a rich Sangiovese wine given it’s deep complexity and the way it develops across the palate. There are so many rich and yet cohesive notes as the beer runs its course. The brew is also quite difficult to review given the age. There are no apparent off flavors or defects due to age besides a drop off in carbonation. Instead it is just so smooth. It actually seems to be almost watery because of how smooth it is. One of my most unique experiences in beer drinking. One of those beers that expands the mind on what beer can be. Incredible.
